    Hey,

    I was wondering if it were possible to upgrade and jailbreak and Ipod touch 2G with 2.2.1 firware and Itunes 8.2.1 which I upgraded recently from Apple. I've tried uninstalling Itunes 8.2.1 to reinstall 8.2 Beta which is what everyone says you need but is there a way to go around 8.2 Beta and use 8.2.1 because I've tried pressing and holding shift then clicking on restore but it jut reverts back to saying that it will restore and update the touch back to 2.2.1 firware.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well,

    Are you on 2.2.1? If not shift click restore and choose the 2.2.1 ispw file, and it will restore to 2.2.1
    You might need to downgrade to itunes 8.1 to jailbreak 2.2.1, so just search the internet for the file and install that
    Click the redsn0w link in my sig and download 0.8 for 3.0 and 0.3 for 2.2.1

    I've got OSX and Itunes 8.2.1 and am in the process of getting back my original 2.2.1 firware for my ipod touch since I can't upgrade (which I want to) 2 3.0 firmware, I'm guessing because its 8.2.1. In order to downgrade to Itunes 8.1 would I need to completely delete my current updated itunes and would I loose all the songs/playlists?

    a similar issue I've been having is how to upgrade to 3.0 software for ipod touch 2G (for free) when already using itunes 8.2.1 which wont allow the shift-click restore option which would then allow u to select the firmware to update to.

    If you want an older version of iTunes search it here

    And you wont lose anything, because the songs and applications and backups are stored in your PC, not in your software.
